Xfce This summer, in the beginning of August, HP has released a new Linux based thin client. Unlike the other models from the "t5000" line of HP thin clients which use Microsoft Windows CE as their embedded operating system, the "t5515" is based on the Linux operating system. This is also, to my knowledged, the first device that is using Xfce for its graphical user interface.

RE: NX Client

It sounds like a nice thin client, not a vendor lock in like SunRays which can't run on anything but Solaris (was there a Linux version yet?)

Excuse me, but you can get to run SunRays ThinClients with a GNU/Linux enviroment.. all you need is a GNU/Linux Server (RedHat or SuSe) and the SunRay Server beta version.
One more thing, theres no vendor lock.. the SunRay comes with a lower version of the SPARC family, and its functionality is FAIR different from any other ThinClient out there... besides, Sun keeps claiming ThinClient computing since 96 I guess...
